Character Information: History here

Personality: Peter Quill is a child of the 80's, born in 1980, and growing up with GI Joe, Knight Rider, Trolls, and Alf. He constantly makes pop culture references, which is even all the more hilarious when his pop culture references can only go up to 1988, when he was abducted by Yondu from earth. He's very comfortable and familiar around alien cultures and technology, since he spent the rest of his childhood and life in space. He often baffles the other aliens with his random references, but he doesn't care, he'll still make them anyway. He's sometimes the only one laughing at his own jokes. He has an admittedly weird creative streak and loves to dance.

Family is a big thing to Peter. He still feels guilt over his reactions at his mother's death, and it is still very upsetting to him. He never knew his biological father (until much later), however he had a surrogate one, Yondu. Despite thinking Yondu was cruel to him, he realizes later on that he was pretty much the father he never had, despite his faults. Peter's real father is a sore spot, as it turns out that he was the one that gave his mother a brain tumor, and tried to trick Peter into helping him take over the universe. When that didn't work, he was basically going to use him as a battery for a millenia. Peter immediately tried to kill Ego upon finding out that he killed his mother. The other Guardians are his family as well, despite their arguing and fights, he truly loves and cares for them all. He's a big softy underneath all of his bluster, and is very sentimental, holding onto his walkman and cassette for years. He misses his mother terribly, and when Yondu dies, it hits him very hard.

Peter is sarcastic, preferring to hit a punchline even if it will hurt someone's feelings, as long as it's funny. He's got a pretty big ego himself, ironically, but there's a lot of bravado mixed in there as well. He knows he's a screw up when it comes down to it--he was a criminal and thief for years--but that's what helped him to relate to the other Guardians. Being from earth gives him a measure of separation from the aliens, a lot of them never let him forget that he's human (which is ironic, considering he finds out that he's only half-human). He had to learn to shrug it off or at least pretend like it didn't bother him, to avoid showing weakness to the Ravagers he grew up with.

The other Guardians have accepted him the way he is, and he's never really had friends to defend before. Having people this close to him, and caring about them and what happens to them, is different, but a good sort of different. He very much likes having them around, enjoying their teamwork and camaraderie. He actually can do a pretty decent motivational speech when it's necessary. He's good at putting the big picture before his own needs, and this gives him a very strong heroic streak. He'd gladly sacrifice himself (and has done so) for his friends, especially Gamorra.

Gamorra has gotten to him like no other woman has. Normally, he doesn't care all that much about the (alien) women he's pursued, he's never committed to anyone, never had a long-term relationship. He's a natural flirt, but he feels guilty about being flirty around other women if Gamorra is around. For someone who's never had any real, strong friendship with anyone before the Guardians, he finds himself drawn to Gamorra. Because of this, he probably won't be pursing a relationship with anyone, as he'd feel too guilty about it, even if they're not officially dating or anything. This is a huge change of character for him, compared to the kind of person he used to be.

Peter is fairly amoral when it comes to a lot of criminal activity, he has a definite pirate's-life-for-me-type attitude, but he certainly recognizes when it's not appropriate to steal something (unlike Rocket). He follows his own code, and has his own rules about right and wrong that he staunchly goes by, which doesn't necessarily line up with galactic law. However, he has no problem breaking other people's rules, especially for the greater good. He thinks a lot of rules are stupid, anyway. He is willing to kill when necessary, but he's not particularly cold-blooded. He'd knock someone out first, rather than shoot them in the head, if they're not attacking him. However, if he's being attacked or if the situation calls for it, he'd willingly kill.

He's actually fairly clever, even if he can be a bit of an idiot sometimes. He thinks extremely outside the box (way, way outside the box) and comes up with unique plans (or weird ones) that end up being somehow sucessful, like when he challenged Ronan to a dance off to distract him.
